Mobile World Congress – Plantronics (NYSE: PLT), a pioneer in wearable technology, today announced Voyager Edge, a compact and stylish, high-performance Bluetooth earpiece. Featuring a slim, sophisticated design and signature Plantronics audio technology, Voyager Edge offers clear communication in any environment with proprietary noise- and wind-cancellation and an elegant charging case providing extended talk time on-the-go. Intuitive, responsive features such as voice commands and Smart Sensors let wearers answer calls hands-free with a word or as they place the headset on their ear, and Voyager Edge announces the name of incoming callers. Voyager Edge will be available worldwide starting in April.

“Always-on-the-go mobile users may answer a call in a cab, take it out on the street, and not say their goodbyes until they’ve finished their latte at the coffee shop – they need reliable audio that effortlessly handles transitions, much like they do,” said Jan Caldarella, senior category manager, Mobile Communications at Plantronics. “Voyager Edge is the perfect companion to any smartphone, offering premium features in a stylish, intelligent earpiece.”
Designed to make an impression, Voyager Edge elegantly blends eye-catching style with careful attention to comfort, with its lightweight form factor and soft-touch, natural materials. The earpiece-only design (no over-the-ear component) makes it easy to put on and remove and is particularly convenient for use with glasses or sunglasses. With its portable charging case, the Voyager Edge is an always-ready companion – always charged and ready to keep the wearer connected.
- Portable charging case: The protective rechargeable case tops up the earpiece battery, adding up to 10 more hours of talk time, features touch-sensitive controls, and shows the charge status of both headset and case.
- Noise-cancellation: Multiple microphones and signature Plantronics audio technology eliminate disruptive background noise so your caller hears the speaker, not their surroundings.
- Smart Sensor technology: Responsive sensors intuitively direct calls to the phone or headset, pause music for incoming calls, and automatically answer calls as the wearer places the headset on their ear.
- Voice commands and audio alerts: Allows wearers to use their voice to answer or ignore calls, check battery level, connection status, and more. And Voyager Edge announces the incoming caller’s name – no need to look at the phone to check who is calling.
- Language options: Personalize Voyager Edge with a language of choice by simply selecting a preferred language during the set-up process.
- Always-Ready Battery life: Charging via MicroUSB, the Voyager Edge headset provides up to six hours of talk time, or up to 16 hours with the portable charging case.
- Locate your headset using free app: Download the free Find MyHeadset app for Android™ phones and send a tone to hear the nearby headset or track last usage on a map using BackTrack feature. (Available for iOS™ in Spring.)

Voyager Edge will be available in three colors, Carbon Black, Slate Grey and Glacial White, at authorized Plantronics retailers, etailers, and carriers worldwide starting this April.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
